Participants learn how to use the power of community network organizing as a change agent right where they are. This workshop focuses on how to take an idea or goal and move it forward in a person’s group, organization, or community. Additionally, participants learn how to recognize their own implicit bias and engage others as they build power together to gain traction for making a difference. Skills learned in this training can be used in both formal and informal leadership roles and to support other change agents who are actively working to affect change
